It is important to mention that this project exist already for several years and it was created by a working group of volunteers involved in group organized under the name "Interfaith dialogue” and they also manage to get support from the service of their Provincial administration aiming to promote intercultural cooperation.
Their provincial administration is offering different resource, such as administration help and support in facilitating the meetings on local level and also help and support in promoting and realizing a local program. The Province is also helping to promote activities with flyers and banners and they provide small financial support giving a local group about 200 Euros to cover their costs.

With our local group we are partners since the start of this project and promotors of this initiative in our municipality.
